Throughout the world, believers experience the call of God to respond together in times of local, regional or national crisis. Indigenous churches and believing communities best understand the needs and the cultural context of their own people. It is often the churches that offer the most effective and sustained effort in response to human suffering. We are called to stand with our overseas partners and respond to their requests for assistance as they reach out to serve their neighbors. This is part of our enduring witness to Christ's love worldwide.

A woman carries her tarp early in the morning in a camp for over 5,000 internally displaced persons in an Episcopal Church compound in Wau, South Sudan. Most of the families here were displaced by violence early in 2017, after a larger number took refuge in other church sites when widespread armed conflict engulfed Wau in June 2016. Most of the people in this camp have no shelter, and use a tarp or mats to lay on the ground at night.
